Vincent Gallo is curator of the next All Tomorrow's Parties festival, held on 22nd - 24th April 2005 at Pontins, Cambersands, UK.
The actor, musician, filmmaker and artist best known for his 1998 film "Buffalo 66" released two albums on Warp When and Recordings Of Music For Film
ATP chose the always-controversial raconteur as a curator because of his vast record collection and extensive music knowledge. Says festival director Barry Hogan, "His musical taste is evident in places on 'When', which to me is a very underrated album. I knew Gallo would be able to deliver a lineup that would reflect his record collection and take ATP to new directions that will keep the festival as fresh as ever."
Many of the acts have been confirmed and are listed below, with many more to come:
POLLY JEAN HARVEY (SOLO)
THE (JON SPENCER) BLUES EXPLOSION
OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL
JAMES CHANCE AND THE CONTORTIONS
WOMEN AND CHILDREN
